The dream celeb dad.

Give us a call, Jake.

He’s a versatile actor, seems lovely and easy on the eye, in case you hadn’t noticed, and now he’s getting broody – swoon!

Jake Gyllenhaal just made all of our hearts flutter a little as he’s admitted that he’s looking forward to starting his own family.

The actor told People magazine that having kids might help him grow up a little more.

“I want to continue becoming more of an adult than I already am,” he says of his future.

“Hopefully with a family of my own.”

At 36, we reckon he’s got plenty of time.

Jake is currently single, having in been involved with stars including Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift.

He’s already a proud uncle to his sister Maggie’s kids, something that appears to have contributed to his broodiness.

“My sister has raised two beautiful daughters. They are the most amazing girls,” he said.

“It’s fun to send them home with a lot of candy, because it was almost like, ‘Enjoy it, Mags!’ A little payback for being the sister who made me perform weird shows at our parents’ dinner parties.”

It’s all fun and games being the cool uncle, Jake, but it’ll be a different story when you have your own…
